The Australian Government has taken an important step in promoting innovation by releasing one of the most requested and high-value digital datasets to the economy, PSMA Australia Limited’s Geocoded National Address File (G-NAF) and associated Administrative Boundaries dataset.

With the open release of G-NAF, Australia becomes one of only a few countries in the world to make this data openly available.

Geocoded address data can be used for many purposes, including personal navigation applications, infrastructure planning, business planning and analysis, logistics and service planning, and government service delivery and policy development.

The Administrative Boundaries dataset is Australia’s most comprehensive national collection of boundaries including government, statistical and electoral boundaries.

The G-NAF and Administrative Boundaries datasets are available for use and reuse at no charge to end users through the Australian Government’s online data portal, data.gov.au. Updated versions of these datasets will be published on a quarterly basis.

The G-NAF is available at: www.data.gov.au/dataset/geocoded-national-address-file-g-naf

The Administrative Boundaries dataset is available at: www.data.gov.au/dataset/psma-administrative-boundaries
